You have to consider the opinion of someone else. Does it even exist and do you know where to find it?
Or it fell apart. Get to know other fursuit artists!
The occasional suggestion or constructive criticism as mentioned earlier! Before you jump into business with someone, consider the fursuit list of reasons that this project or this client might not be the correct fit for you. Or do you feel dread? How will you do the long hair to get that chat shape?
You restart the work. As an example, all of my patrons are given a link to my Telegram chat where you can share your work and receive critique from a like-minded audience. A commission requires a lot of back-and-forth discussion between the artist and the client. But will they all fit correctly together?
Those cool markings? An acquaintance says yes! Does that prospect of making something new excite you? By machine? One path was the one most recommended, was that I go out and get a full-time job as I slowly refunded everyone on my list a viable decision, advised to me by furry and non-furry alike while I continue living and paying my living expenses.
Could they get feet?? Also how much for hands??
Paid artistic work invites criticism. The client seems happy tho. You loved it and the client hates it.
Fursuits are deceptive. Friends want to see you succeed! They seem excited so you agree for an introductory chat. So I chose a hard path to regain my business name; I started by being completely honest with all of my customers and offering refunds if they chose. Is this the right client for me? They find you at fursuit con and offer to buy you a drink. In my earlier business years, I found myself in a deep hole; I struggled financially day to day, I had over 80 clients on my list, and I was overwhelmed by the amount of work to be done.
My suggestion is to first take on smaller projects with a quick turn-over.
This can be a huge drain on your time, your money, and your motivation which just compounds those first two issues. Do you have the fur for it in stock? Maybe they drive other potential clients away with their actions or threaten an artist beware on you.
By hand? A few more rounds of these or similar behaviours. When you are starting out, this is how you decide on your pricing and deadlines. Will they bounce or sit weirdly?
With a personal project, you do not need to discuss your ideas with others, you do not need to stick to a reference or plan, you can cut corners with sewing or final finishing, etc. Everything has to be finished and durable and clean. Many fursuit makers have one or both of these with various mentoring tiers.
Have you done it before? It sounds like a great deal to gain several thousand dollars in one simple cheque, but, if you are not careful with budgeting, if you undercharge, or under-estimate how long it will take; you can find yourself falling into a state fursuit using future chats to pay your current project materials, shipping, taxes, etc; as well as your regular life expenses like rent, car, insurance, utilities, loan repayments, etc.
When a new project crosses your eyeballs and you get that excited glow, you can immediately imagine how great it will be to show off the finished product in your portfolio. This new client chats a lot and seems friendly. Do you make and attach them as one tail or leave them separate? Can you take the corrections, make it right, and move on?
As your business grows, it pays in your time, resources, and sanity to know when to refuse a commission or when to cancel a commission and to do so as early and gracefully as possible. Children cannot be held to a contract in the USA and most fursuit artists require their clients to be over 18 many are starting to ask for proof such as a photograph of a legal ID.
These clients though generally well-meaning are honestly hell on the self-esteem.

If there is a fursuit artist that you fursuit, ask them and see what they offer! Does it have Spikes? That is all part of learning and growing and trying new things. The immediate assumption is that you can knock that project out and get some money in your chat, while filling out your portfolio, gaining some experience, and having some fun! Sadly, getting out of this situation can be very difficult. Sometimes something you make does not work out.
You need to accurately size it to a person you have never met and who cannot try it on during the process. If you currently have other major obligations besides fursuit making such as work, family, health, and school which already take or have the potential of taking most or all of your available time, then it might not be the right time to take full suit commissions. What will they be made from? Poor communication on either artist or client end can easily snowball into angry clients and artists, stress and anxiety, emotional withdrawal from your work, misunderstandings, and even artist bewares.
Not those who try to cut corners or denigrate or manipulate you for their own goals. Track your time and choose the most profitable options to promote and pursue. Sometimes there are issues that prevent one artist-client relationship but can be managed within another and eventually other artists might recognize which clients to refer to you and you to them. There were solutions, all very challenging decisions laid out before me.
These are all aspects worth considering. An example could be a character with 3 tails. At higher tiers you can my Discord to share and chat in real time. We are usually happy to vouch for good clients and warn about any particular issues you may experience with others.
But stop and REALLY think about the project you are considering, break it down into every aspect, every small detail that you will have to source and buy materials for, that you will have to construct and sew fursuit cut and sculpt and paint, and then decide how jazzed you really feel about building it. Artist-deed projects and smaller projects will offer more flexibility for unpredictable and limited time—and energy. Cancel and refund them and move on.
And If YOU are your favorite reference artist, make sure to charge appropriately for the extra service! Not fun!! Can you stay calm, be professional, and set expectations? The simplest chat is to prevent this entirely right from your first commission! How will you do that? Or say you take on a particularly tall client and you suddenly have to research and develop all new larger hand and foot des as your current ones do not fit them or the padding you normally make looks too small now and needs to be remade larger. I watched my budget closely, avoided going to conventions so I could instead refund customers.
